The Indian

On Sunday we visited the Indian.

This park is only a mile away from my house. I sometimes walk there on Sundays for a change of scenery.

Johnson City is the sister city to Guaranda, Ecuador and this is our friendship arch dedicated in 1982.

The park is also home to this massive sculpture by Peter Wolf Toth.

The Trail of the Whispering Giants is a collection of sculptures by Hungarian-born artist Peter Wolf Toth. The sculptures range in height from 20 to 40 feet (6.1 to 12.2 m), and are between 8 and 10 feet (2.4 and 3.0 m) in diameter. Currently there are 74 Whispering Giants, with at least one in each of the 50 U.S. states, as well as in Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, and one in Hungary. In 1988, Toth completed his goal of placing at least one statue in each of the 50 states, by carving one in Hawaii, and in 2008, he created his first Whispering Giant in Europe, Stephen I of Hungary in Délegyháza, Hungary along the Danube River.

This picture shows the massive scale of the sculpture. 
I am five feet seven inches tall.

Lightning struck the sculpture at some time in the past. Thankfully it survived.

This very casual look includes old jeans from Chico's and a several years old shirt from The Van Heusen Women's collection. The sandals are from T.J.Maxx. The belt is by Ralph Lauren from Belk.

Jeans and White

On Saturday we had a project to work on and a few errands to run.

Nothing special was planned and it rained in the morning so I wore ankle zip jeans with a white tank and an open weave sweater from Chico's. 

The sweater hem is higher in the front and lower in the back. I think it was from the Chico's Traveler's collection. I recently found it on the sale rack.

The statement necklace made from a series of gold and silver chains in different sizes is from Chico's also. The bag is from Coach Outlet. The shoes are from T.J.Maxx.

I hope you have a great weekend!
Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.

Jeans and A Tee... At My Age?

If you were also in high school in the early seventies, you may be like me in that you find the ultimate comfort is that "uniform" you wore for most of high school.

Occasionally I still see one of my high school friends wearing the same look we loved at seventeen but a Harley tee and faded out jeans will not work for me anymore. Comfort now has to do with more than just how if feels on my body. I want to communicate the fact that I have been on a tremendous journey for these past forty years. I have traveled the world, owned several businesses, lived in great cities and learned volumes since I graduated from high school in 1974.

I still wear jeans and a tee quite often but my comfort zone now includes great fitting dark washed jeans, a slim fitting tee with a scoop or V-neck with a nice jacket or open cardigan sweater. Knowing my body shape is key to putting together comfortable outfits. There is a "sweet spot" between mid-hip and mid-thigh where I like my jackets to end. They should be neither too short showing all of my too flat bottom nor too long making my short legs appear even shorter. The jeans fit my body, neither too tight nor sagging in the back. Dark wash looks more appropriate and much better with most of my jackets, but I do have one faded pair of classic Levis which I wear with flats and a navy blazer on sunny fall days. The NYDJ cropped jeans I am wearing below remain one of my summer favorites also.

I hope that sharing my inspiration sets from Polyvore and explaining why I make certain choices helps you to put together great outfits that make you feel confident and comfortable. Here's to our next forty years!

Thank you for reading my blog and for joining me on this journey through midlife and beyond.
